Martin Taylor is one of the Fund Managers, helping to keep the Eastern European Fund on track. As can be seen, from the reports that we reproduce and analyse here at Nevsky Capital News, any fund can see increases and decreases in value.
To a certain extent, it can be said that the success or failure of any Fund Manager will be defined by the ability to out-perform direct competitors. Although the overall value may rise or fall, depending upon the performance of specific businesses, sectors and broader market sentiments, the key is to provide better returns than the alternatives.
When the overall value is falling, does it fall at a slower rate than competitors? That’s something that we are continually looking to observe. The same can be said to be true when thinking about rising prices: are things better than others? Or is a fund simply seeming to perform well due to a wider rise in stock market positioning. Is there, in other words, the opportunity to actually make more by investing elsewhere?
As might be expected, our own reports and reviews seek to answer such questions. It’s likely that you’ll have your own views here too.

About Martin Taylor
The establishment of the Eastern European Fund has seen Martin oversee investments in a range of countries in central and Eastern Europe. Such investments, as carried out on behalf of Nevsky Capital, would clearly not be possible without a considerable degree of knowledge.
As with any investment fund, there’s a reliance on a dedicated team of analysts and specialists. There’s a need to understand what is going on within specific countries, industries and companies.

The ability to make the first move can often ensure better returns for investors. It can also be seen that this works in reverse, with the requirement to act quickly in order to reduce some holdings. This may come about as a result of changes within an individual industry.
Predicting such changes would simply not be possible, without having the dedicated team of experts that are available to Martin. As a result of this association, the Eastern European Fund undoubtedly aims to make investments that are sensible and should be cost-effective over time.
